At long last, the battle has indeed ended and so, therefore, the name Griezman is now a Barcelona player. Barcelona has now completed the signing of the French talisman after a long feud between Barcelona and his parent club Athletico Madrid.
According to Goal.com,
Barcelona has officially announced the signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, with the French forward putting pen-to-paper after the Blaugrana paid his full €120m (£107m/$134m) release clause.
The former Real Sociedad forward and 2018 World Cup winner has signed at the Camp Nou for the next five seasons through to June 2024 – a contract that includes a buyout clause of €800m.
With the 800 million euros release clause, Griezman is now undoubtedly the world’s most expensive player on paper. It will certainly cost a fortune to sign him. It is obviously certainly Barcelona have now learnt their lessons which happened with regards to Neymar and the PSG situation.
Do you think Griezman will live up to the billing? Time will certainly tell. Welcome to Barca!!!
